Singing Lessons / Recorder (Blokfluit) lessons for all ages

I am a singer and recorder player, studying in the Conservatorium van Amsterdam. I can teach you recorder and singing and adapt to your tastes and needs.

In both instruments, I focus as a teacher and performer, on a healthy, joyful and technically skilled way of playing and singing. With my students, I focus not only on the instrument sound production, but also on body posture, relaxation and organic movement. A happy, relaxed body produces a beautiful, natural and relaxed sound.

What music style would you like to learn?
Would you like to play folk music, to sing pop songs or walk through a more classical path?
I have experience in different areas, having sang and played folk and jazz music and also studied in the Conservatorium for a long time.

I can also help you with music theory, from the basic introduction to music to advanced solfeggi and rhythms. I graduated in Musicology and studied Music Pedagogy in Portugal before moving to Amsterdam.
For little children I can also combine the playing of the instrument with more didactic activities mixed with body movement and dance!

In the past I taught how to play and sing, from little children (4 years old) to adults with around 60 years old, in group sets and individual lessons. I can adapt to your needs and requests!

And most of all, you will fall in love with music, all kinds of music and have loads of fun!

About Me

I am Joana, from Portugal. I love music, dance, writing and relaxing in nature.
I have been doing music for more than 10 years now. I am a singer, recorder player and clarinetist. I also have some curiosity about frame drums and like to play it to relax.

I love music in general, which means that in a day I could be listening to Bach, then Mumford and Sons, then Epica, then Ella Fitzgerald, then Debussy, then Sweden folk music, then old ladies singing songs from Portugal. I believe music serves to express our deepest emotions and to enjoy life in a smoother and more meaningful way. This is what I search in all my musical projects and what I aim with my playing.

I also love teaching and by doing that I feel often at the most comfortable place of my self. My mother is a teacher and I always watched and learnt from her since I was a little kid. How to wonder children with the beauty of knowledge! From as soon as 16 years old I started teaching music to children. I have taught music initiation for children from 4-10 years old, private lessons for children, teenagers and adults, and I conducted a children's choir and an adult's choir while being still in Portugal. Since I moved to the Netherlands this side has been a bit erased, due to language barriers and because I needed to focus on my studies. But now it is the time to start doing it again! Looking forward to see you!

Very professional and very lighthearted at the same time :) Had a wonderful first leson.
I was very lucky to find Joana for my singing lessons! She is extremely kind, clear in her explanation, professional and knowledgeable. Her lessons are never boring and she is very engaging, which is a big plus point. I totally recommend her!
Joana is a very talented, dedicated and experienced teacher! She is attentive, patient, passionate, enthusiastic, knowledgeable, creative and encouraging! I take lessons via Skype and I am more than happy to have found Joana as my singing teacher! Joana easily adapts to the student's level and tailors each lesson to the student's individual needs. I would describe her teaching approach as original, motivating and effective. Joana knows how to create a warm and supporting learning environment where I feel comfortable to explore and improve my singing voice. It is apparent that Joana loves teaching and sharing her knowledge. I would definetely recommend Joana to anyone who is either interested in taking singing or recorder lessons!
Very attentive and clear communicator, offered strong guidance but also let me give my own input in terms of what I wanted to get out of the lesson. Enjoyed our lesson and would absolutely recommend to others!

Classical singing and piano lessons for all levels and ages
Dear parents and students, I am a professional singer and pianist from Hong Kong, having more than 10 years of experience in music teaching. I graduated from the Chinese University of Hong Kong with a Bachelor degree in music (with honors), Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussel with a Master degree in classical singing (with distinction) and also the Post-master degree in classical singing (with distinction). I am currently a professional opera singer working mainly in Germany with conductors and directors from houses and studios such as Theater Rudolstadt, Lyric Opera Studio Weimar, Komische Oper Berlin and Royal Opera House. I am a holder of Licentiate Trinity College of London (LTCL) vocal and piano performance certificates, both with distinctions. Besides, I am a holder of ABRSM Grade 8 music theory certificate with merit. I have given singing and piano lessons to students ranging from 2 to 40 years of age. Very happily, all of them had obtained distinctions at their ABRSM exams, some of them also won first prize at competitions. However, I do not teach music because of this. Distinctions and prizes are bonuses, but most importantly, I hope my students can enjoy and understand music. For beginners, I focus very much on building basic techniques. Alongside with that, I spend around 10 minutes every lesson on things such as ear training, music theory, music history, sight-reading/sight-singing, music composition, instrumentation and conducting, depending on the interest on the student. For more advanced students, I teach more about musicality and presentation. I aim to provide all-round knowledge to my students so they will be well equipped for future development. Since I grow up at one of the best English schools in Hong Kong, I can communicate in English very fluently without accent. Besides English, Cantonese and Mandarin Chinese are my mother tongues. I am also knowledgeable in German, French and Italian. I am confident that I will provide my students the best learning experience.

Mariela
Classical & Pop Singing, Music reading and Music History
Hello all! I am a Mexican Musicologist and singer based in Amsterdam. I have been teaching for almost 7 years to different age ranges. //During the Singing lessons you will learn how to breathe and use the 'right' muscles for singing, voice exercises, repertoire and how to improve your music ear, it is basically a relaxing therapy, trust me. We will find together and based on your taste what songs you would like to work on! // The Music Theory lessons are for the ones who want to learn how to read music scores, no matter your level for sure I can keep challenging you with exercises and funny dynamics. Please be patient, to learn music language takes time... //In Music History I specialize in Classical repertoire, so why is Beethoven so good? Why is Mozart so famous around the world? what should you 'listen' when you listen academic music? Adding to this I also compare the music development with other arts and movements, so bring enough paper and pens for this lesson!
